st: file write handle? |

Hi, Here:

I need write the caculated result from my program together with some interpretation text into a text file. STATA seems that it is only capable of writing interpretation text into the specified text, but not for caculated result. Please look at the following code:

...

svymean dummy1 dummy2

mat define b= e(b)

mat define v= e(V)

scalar lb1 = b[1,1] - invttail(e(df_r), 0.025)*sqrt(v[1,1])

scalar ub1 = b[1,1] + invttail(e(df_r), 0.025)*sqrt(v[1,1])

file open handle using C:\temp\output.txt, write text

file write handle "RRFSS 2005 "

file write handle "Module objectives: "

file write handle "the upper confidence interval is: " lb1

file close handle

After running the program, I found that the value of the variable "lb1" is not written into the text file. So I wonder whether there is a way to output the value of a variable into a text file. Thanks!

Best regards
